Common issues and garage door servicing

Although there are plenty of steps you can take to minimise potential damage to your garage door, regular professional maintenance and servicing will undoubtedly extend its working life. Additionally, trying to repair or service certain parts of your garage door can also be dangerous if it’s not done by a professional. So if you’re ever unsure about the best course of action, make sure you get in touch with the experts at Purple Patch Doors.

Parts of a Garage Door

You might also be wondering, “How much does garage door repair cost?” The good news is that It can be relatively inexpensive if you keep an eye out for the regular culprits — here are a few we’ve encountered over the years:

Broken springs

Powerful torsion springs connected to cables counterbalance a heavy garage door and allow it to be raised and lowered by hand. However, because these springs are under constant pressure, they eventually break.


So if your garage door suddenly feels heavier than usual to lift, then the springs probably need to be replaced.

Grinding or squeaking noises

If you hear these types of noises while your door is opening or closing, there’s a good chance your rollers are worn out or insufficiently lubricated. Lubricants can be applied as a first port of call. However, if this doesn’t resolve the issue, then rollers can be replaced if necessary.


Rattling and popping noises

Rattling noises when moving may be due to loose screws or nuts and bolts. However, popping is more likely to be related to the torsion spring; it likely needs to be lubricated or adjusted.

Uneven door movement

If your door is opening or closing unevenly or clunkily, it’s entirely possible that the tracks may be partially blocked by debris. In these instances, it’s crucial to clear them as soon as possible, helping ensure that damage won’t be done to other components in the process.
